Varied and adventurous menu generally biased to seafood but has a great lobster mac and cheese. One of the best Caesar salads around. Bartender staff are just great. Scallops are too good.

Beautiful view with reasonable prices. Also got a couple of freebies from the bartender. Really attentive service, and nice and quiet so you can talk to your party. My favourite Vancouver restaurant!

it has a beautiful location on the water and and although we went in the evening in fall picture and feel how spectacular it would be on a nice sunny summer evening with the windows open and fresh air. The food was amazing and a nice simple selection so you don't have to spend too much time trying to decide between multiple choice in the same food group , fin , fowl our hoof. Appetizers were a meal all on their own - good portions.
We will be back !

The Saturday afternoon menu was very limiting. There was nothing on there I wanted to order. I ended up with the oysters but I would expect more sauces, the prawn tempura was very fishy so probably not fresh, the lobster Mac and cheese was runny and unflavourful. The hostess was very rude, I think some more training in how to explain new policies politely would be a good idea. The sever was decent. Over all I was very disappointed, yes, the view is beautiful but that was done by nature and not the restaurant.

You pay for the view but it's a very relaxing bar for a few drinks and a bite. Drinks, food and service cannot be criticized. Parking next door is easy and, with reservations, you are seated immediately.
I still prefer crossing the bridge and checking out the many options on the shore though.

A Sunday brunch during the pandemic. Good protocols. Great view from upstairs and semi open air. No propane in one of the space heaters. Isn't it someone's job to ensure that the heaters work? Hollandaise sauce on bennys was very poor. It was explained to me that I could not choose the temperature of my burger as they do not grind the meat on premises but what I did not expect was a commercial pre -formed patty which by its nature must have been from frozen. Prices are not cheap. What did I like? The booth. The view. The feeling of normalcy. I would choose another place next time.

I have no issue paying for quality food. However, the Caesar salad was ridiculous. $18 and it was tiny and maybe average in quality. You pay for a caesar at Hy’s but you get an amazing salad. I would come back in summer for appies and a drink on the rooftop but not for dinner. For that, there are much better choices.

If you like sea food the Lift is one of the best. Located in a most “romantic” setting with easy access.

We had a 4 pm reservation in the patio. We requested seating with heaters. We were seated with no service at our table for almost 30 min. Had to go see the hostess to request heaters to be turned on and get a server for drinks and food. Had to get manager to get heaters on. All propane tanks were empty. Once server same food and drink were good.

We dined with a friends from out of town so we wanted to take advantage of the view. We had a table on top patio . The weather cooperated and outdoor heaters took the chill off. The service was great and the food delicious! I still think about my crunchy roll . A lot!

We had reservations for the restaurant and arrived & were seated early. We did however wait an extraordinary amount of time for our food and it was mediocre. I think this place has ambitions beyond its capabilities. For the price, location and hype we were disappointed with the delivery.

Hi there

I seat at the patio for dinner but I notice that the heater not working well. I would like suggest make sure all heater are working due to October weather starting cold when we seat at patio. One more suggestion, consider to have more vegan menu for customers. Anyway I will come back in near future.

Thank you

One of the best views in Vancouver.
Their happy hour seating used to be very limited in the bar-currently while the upstairs patio is still open, the ground level bar area has expanded to much more seating capacity. What a bonus. Excellent calamari and spicy tuna roll. They used to have more sushi on the happy hour menu...please bring it back!
